Hi I really need this because I have aload of Bitmaps that are HUGE (5MB each) that I need to cut down on, so anyone know of a tool that will convert them quickly from Bitmap images into JPEGs without having to save as all 1000+ of them.

can't you just right-click, re-name them and change their extension from Bmp to JPeg? Works for me i think.

No. I assure you that that does NOT work for you or anyone else.

You can download a free trial version of Jasc Paint Shop Pro.

The best utility for doing this, as you can do 1000's of conversions in a simple batch load, all at once, is ACDSee 5.0 by ACD Systems. There is a trial/shareware version I believe.

But, don't you have to pay for that? Allegedly?

LOL....why don'y you just open your bitmap click on file then click save as....then pick JPG.....that's what I do...

ahh I reread that...don't want to save as all of em?....hmmm....better just not be lazy!!!:D

sure all of these programs work if you do it manually, but he said he had over 1000 pics to convert.

so i'd recommande ACDSee, apparently it works fine, but I can't support that since i never tried it. However, if you have photoshop, you can also do it pretty easily.

lmao! :lol:

I didn't know until just a few weeks ago that the paint in the newer versions of windows does that. The last time I used paint was on a Windows 95 machine. Makes it easier than firing up the big programs.

Are all these bmps from the internet? If they are you probably have a file in your temp internet folder or java folder that does this. If you clean those out all pics should save in their proper format.
